There are two methods for performing a hard reset on an SP5 Series keyboard:

Global Mode Method: (with the SP5 powered up in normal operating modes)

  1. Press GLOBAL, then the Chan/Param Down button until you see:

    Global         26/30
    Hard Reset ?        
    

  2. Press Next/+, you'll see:
    Global         26/30
    Confirm ?        
    

  3. Press Next/+ again - briefly you will see:
    Global         26/30
    Resetting...        
    

    The SP5 will then reboot and be completely reset back to factory defaults.

System Mode Method: (useful if you are unable to perform the Global mode method)

  1. Power the SP5 OFF and disconnect any USB connections.
  2. Press/Hold the SHIFT button while you turn the SP5 ON.
  3. Release the SHIFT button once you see the scrolling title screen:

    SYSTEM MODE      1/5
    Run SP5_8        
    

  4. Press Chan / Param UP or DOWN until you see:
    SYSTEM MODE      4/5
    System Reset        
    

  5. Press Next/+ once. The SP5 will display:
    System Reset        
    Delete all user objects?

  6. Press Next/+ again. The SP5 will display:
    System Reset        
    Please wait...
    

    ...followed by:
